Costa Mesa, CA (PressExposure) May 30, 2014 -- Cat Zingano has been cleared to train hard so she can get herself back into the ring. After years of training and fighting Cat suffered knee injuries that sidelined her and took her out of the fighting ring.
Faced with the possibility of having knee surgery, Dr. Fady Elias, Medical Director at Ortho-Regenerative Institute, approached Cat about adipose stem cell treatment plus PRP injections in hopes she could avoid surgery altogether. After 3 treatments (initial treatment on Oct 3, 2013) on both knees she has been given the all clear to train at 100%. "My left knee is 100% and hasn't felt this great in 10 years," said Zingano. "I am extremely grateful to Dr. Elias and his whole staff, they were wonderful at each one of my treatments."
The successful treatment of MMA Start Cat Zingano is another step forward for stem cell treatment plus PRP injections and patients looking to avoid surgery or to improve their chances of a successful recovery after surgery.
About Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP stimulates proteins and encourage regeneration of cellular growth to the injured areas. This is done by having blood drawn from the patient and separating the white and red cells through the process of centrifugation. The concentrated platelets are taken and combined with the remaining blood and prepared to be injected in the injured area.
About Stem Cells
Stem cells are found throughout the body in almost every organ. Three types of stem cells are, embryonic stem cells (ESCs), bone-marrow stem cells (BMSCs), and adipose stem cells (ASCs). Stem cells are an undifferentiated cell of a multicellular organism that has the capability self-producing into more cells of the same type. Ortho-Regenerative Institute only uses adipose stem cells (ASCs).
